Mini Cempedak with Mung Beans

Mini Cempedak with Mung Beans

This year’s crowning jewel – the new Mini Cempedek with Mung Beans promises to pique your palate with its delightfully contrasting profile and texture. Cousin to the jackfruit but possessing a more superior honey nectar taste and heady aroma, Masterchef Lap Fai has ingeniously incorporated the exotic Cempedak fruit into the season’s creation. Relish the perfect union of the refreshingly sweet fruit pulps married with the split mung beans’ silky texture, making this tropical-inspired treat a standout.


SIGNATURE SNOWSKINS TO CELEBRATE LUNAR LEGACY

Making their much-anticipated return are three artisanal mini snowskin selections, namely the Green Tea Twist with Yolk, Blueberry with Vintage Hua Diao Wine (Low Sugar) and White Lotus Paste with Champagne Ganache.

Specially curated for the matcha fanatics, nibble on the immensely-popular Green Tea Twist with Yolk 彩云蛋黄. This petite gem of delectably smooth and fragrant white lotus seed paste is perfectly complemented by the fresh vegetal notes of Japanese matcha, enhanced by a decadent salted egg yolk core.

Setting a brilliant stage for innovative mooncake creation is the Blueberry with Vintage Hua Diao Wine (Low Sugar) 低糖迷你陈年花雕蓝莓. Cocooned within a lovely luscious purple, the well-loved cake entices with a delicate balance of sweet and tartness of blueberries, imbued with hints of 30-year ‘Chen Nian Hua Tiao’ (Vintage Rice Wine). The fact that this is a low-sugar option makes for a guilt-free indulgence.

For those who enjoy a dash of bubbly in their mooncakes, don’t miss the White Lotus Paste with Champagne Ganache 白莲蓉香槟. Amid white silken snowskin is a champagne-filled white chocolate ganache centre studded in Hua Ting’s premium white lotus paste. Take a bite and be rewarded with a mouthful of fizzy champagne goodness that will send you over the moon!

Featuring a flavour each of the snowskin specialties, the Hua Ting Mini Snowskin Treasures 精选迷你冰皮月饼 is a prime choice for impressive gifting, perfectly suited for those who delight in new-fangled pairings.
